Former undisputed middleweight champion Jermain Taylor was arrested for allegedly shooting his cousin, got charged first degree battery and aggravated assault Tuesday evening in his home in Arkansas. Before the shooting Taylor got into an argument with his cousin. His cousin was unarmed. After the argument Taylor's cousin was shot but wounded.
Taylor before all of this had four comeback fights and won them all since losing to Arthur Abraham back in October 17, 2009 by a knockout in Berlin, Germany for the Super Six Tournament. After winning four comeback fights he had a title shot set for October 8, 2014 against Sam Soliman for the IBF middleweight title. So, now after getting arrested, getting charged, we do not know what will happen now if the fight will still happen or not. Most likely, the fight is off.
